Abstract

The Patient Learning Centre was founded in Hyvinkää Hospital in 2000 to support patients and their families' informational needs. In order to evaluate the Learning Centre's effectiveness we started a development project. One of the purposes was to analyze patients' Internet and computer use. The data for the describing survey-research was collected by questionnaires at two occasions. At the end of the project a number of patients who used internet had increased, one third did not use a computer at all. Getting information in discussions with the nurse was however the most important way. To develop user friendly methods in getting information is a challenge.
